Interested In Becoming A County Committee Member
County Committee members represent election districts which are the smallest political units, typically comprising of 700-1,000 people, approximately 1 to 3 city blocks. Assembly districts are made up of several dozen election districts. Each election district has two to four elected county committee positions which can change from year to year.
The main responsibility of a county committee member is casting a vote for officers of the county committee; including chairperson, secretary, treasurer, first vice chairperson, vice chairs, and sergeant at arms, which occurs every two years. The County Committee also meets at least once each year to discuss Party business and consider any proposed resolutions. Vacancy in the State Assembly, State Senate, or Congress, county committee members in that district may be convened to vote on selecting the Democratic Party’s nominee if a special election is called to fill that vacancy.
